LARGE BROWN MATTE LEATHER TUNDRA WITH MEN'S SUITING FABRIC AND A TASSEL


► Large sized boho slouchy bag made of amazing strong durable brown leather from a vintage jacket. This leather is gorgeous. It was an old men's work jacket and has some beautiful front pockets with buttons that have crest detailing on them. The leather itself is incredibly soft but thick and durable. The top panel is made from the sleeves of an upcycled men's suit! You can see the buttons were from the sleeve as well! There is also a back black zipper pocket for quick storage of keys, cell phone, lip balm, metro pass etc. I am in love with this bag. This leather is incredible!

► You could use this as a laptop bag, book bag, overnight bag, or everyday bag. Make sure you check the measurements first and that it will fit your stuff!

► The bag has a dark denim lining with 2 inside pockets (one zipper pocket and one patch pocket) to keep your small items organized.

► Two strap length options: 23.5" and 44". They are both detachable. The longer one is made from a vintage leather belt strap and can be worn messenger style but make sure you measure it to make sure it fits your body.

► This bag is ONE OF A KIND. Because each bag uses vintage leather, I can only recreate the style with different material. Because of this you are getting a bag that is uniquely yours :)

-------------------------
The process of making each bag first starts with sourcing the materials. I visit several different places on a weekly basis to find the right jackets and other materials used to create each bag. Then, the vintage leather jackets are cut apart and pieced together in such a way to salvage great original details in to new Hoakon/Helga bag designs.

I try to use as many upcycled components as I can in each bag, including the linings, and any exterior fabrics used. Every bag is One-of-a-kind because of the vintage materials used. You may see small imperfections and wearing caused from the original jacket. This is part of the charm of the designs and adds to the fact that your bag has a history previous to you owning it! It's a great way to help to support sustainable approaches.

Every bag is handmade by me, in my studio, in Alberta, Canada :)

All purchases are sent out within 4 days of order.

All shipping is done through Canada Post with a standard delivery. This means that it will take approximately 6 -18 business days within North America (depending on where you are from) but can sometimes take longer getting stuck in customs. I tend to get lots of emails saying that the parcel is taking longer than the 12 days... so expect it to take an extra week or two. All bag purchases to Canada and the USA are sent with a tracking number which can be tracked through canadapost.ca. Parcels sent to anywhere else DO NOT have a tracking number can take 4-6 weeks to arrive. Hoakon/Helga is not responsible for any lost or damaged items in the mail.
